Something always changes at one point, in Swat Valley that change ended up being the Taliban in 2007. The Taliban became the principal sociopolitical force in all of northwest Pakistan. Girls lost their opportunity for an education, residents lost their modern culture, and everyone was under control.

"”I am afraid” is the title of her first BBC diary entry. She blogged anonymously on the Urdu language site of BBC. Her blog consisted of stories of her life, her fears, and her dream to go to school. Malala and her friends talked about the anxiety they felt from ‘’students dropping away from class for fear of being targeted by militants’’. Malala-Yousafzai-young before shooting

By 2008 an estimate of five hundred schools have been destroyed by the Taliban.

Malala and her father questioned the Taliban. Malala carried a strong passion for education and she knew she had a right to learn and a right to go to school.

Malala Yousafzai, the 17-year-old Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban, awarded the 2014 Nobel peace Prize.

It was on the fifth of May, in 2009 when Malala fled her home for the first time in fear of the Taliban and her safety. Remaining passionate in the cause of education for all, upon her return she continued her campaign for equality of free education for girls. It may have taken over three years, ultimately their voices were heard and accepted all over Pakistan – except for the Taliban. In reward for her hard work of advocacy for education she won Pakistan’s “National Youth Peace Prize.” [02]

Malala was attacked and shot in 2012 on a school bus in the Swat Valley in northwest Pakistan by masked gunmen as a punishment for a blog that she started writing for the BBC. She suffered a shot in the head, two of her school friends ended up injured as well.

She underwent several surgeries, luckily she did not suffer from any permanent brain damage. She spent many weeks in recovery, and in March 2013, Malala attended school in Birmingham. The Taliban’s defense as to why they assaulted her was ‘’promoting secular education.’’ [03]

The youngest person ever to win a Nobel Peace Prize for their amazing work and activism, Malala mentioned that she was “humbled and proud to be the first Pashtun and the first Pakistani to win the prize.” Malala’s campaign for education is worldwide, ‘’A fund set up in her name helps children in education around the world’’

  • The May 18-21 festival appeared to be a Saudi charm offensive aimed at federal policy makers as the Trudeau government fields questions about its decision to grant export permits for the armoured vehicles to a country that U.S. watchdog Freedom House regularly ranks among “the worst of the worst” on human rights. The Saudi embassy blamed “logistical reasons” for its last-minute change of plans when contacted Monday and a spokesperson said the country’s decision was not motivated by fear of protesters. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s office had already said he would not be attending the “Saudi Cultural Days in Canada.” The embassy was adamant the event “had nothing to do” with the $15-billion arms deal and said it had been planned for years. Canada’s Department of Global Affairs, however, said it was notified of the “Cultural Days” on Jan. 14. That date was nearly two weeks after mass executions in Saudi Arabia drew public condemnation from the Trudeau government.

On October 24 2015, the Saudi Supreme Court ratified the death sentence issued to Sheikh Nimr in October 2014. Since September, the Saudi criminal justice system has also ratified the death sentences of Ali al-Nimr, Dawood al-Marhoon, and Abdullah al-Zaher, three men arrested as minors in 2012 for their protest activity.
